After all, one of the proposals the League has floated is to take away draft picks from teams over their cap limit. The Rangers have a payroll right now for this season of over $44 million and that only covers 18 players. They have over $27 million tied up next season with only 4 players under contract. If the NHL has its way, we'll be lucky to get a pick in the 4th round.

PS: salary numbers come from outsidethegarden. Once again fish comes through with useful information.
well lets remember the devils right now have a payroll over 50 million. i didn't say what the league will do i simply stated what the league should do. you mention one league proposal but remember they had 5 other proposals. i do not think the league will cater to the rangers but i do think they should to some extent. a healthy rangers franchise makes for a healthy league.
